Located at 8066 Kercheval Ave, right here in Detroit, Michigan, is a small bakery called Sister Pie. Sister Pie primarily sells (you guessed it!) pies. The menu boasts an extensive range of unique and homemade pies, with flavors like Salted Maple and Apple Butter Custard, which are fan favorites. Although this bakery remained a local secret for awhile, after head baker, Lisa Ludwinski, wrote Sister Pie: Recipes and Stories from the Detroit Bakery, the bakery has become famous for its sweet and savory pie recipes. The publicity from the cookbook has drawn many famous critics to the shop and has recently landed the bakery a primary spot on the annual Best Bakeries in America list, which is published by popular New York City based media site, Thrillist.

 

Thrillist had this to say about Sister Pie:

 

A pie is only as good as its crust. It’s an old adage that this West Village newcomer takes to heart, and the buttery, flaky crusts here are more than simply a vessel: They’re kind of the star. You could fill them with a bunch of old pennies and still have something delicious. Luckily, they don’t do that very weird thing. They fill them with salted maple in one standout option on a roster that includes a transcendent honey lemon meringue, sweet beets, and whatever else comes to the chefs’ minds. Grab some cookies too, the fennel seed snicker doodle is a beast and some meaty hand pies, the ingredients for which are obsessively sourced from local farms.”     

 

Sister Pie offers creative pies with seasonal sweet and savory options and emphasizes using locally sourced, sustainable produce. Congratulations to the local, and extraordinarily imaginative, bakeshop!
